Dashed lines on coordinate dimensions

Hello,

 

Has anyone seen these dashed lines before?  Our other designer noticed these on a couple of coordinate dimensions including a zero datum dimension:

HI @kjoiner

 

 

no, not until now when You share Your pictures.

 

What, if You use a different (standard) template for draft and reset Your user options (renaming registry)?

Re: Dashed lines on coordinate dimensions

I saw these the other day for the first time and was very surprised they printed.

 

I ultimately went into the drawing and moved the dimensions around a bit to make them go away and then located the dimension back in the position I desired. 

 

It was a one time deal and I have not seen them since.

Re: Dashed lines on coordinate dimensions

they look to be created due to a jog...  but that doesnt make sense completly for the origin.

or amybe an alignment indicator of some sort...  but again  why are they same color as dim and printing?

 

HMMM...

They appear when you select a dimension, including the origin, without jogs. Normally they turn off when you deselect the dimension. However, in what seems like rare cases, they stay on and will print. As I said, I have only seen this happen once. It appears they have something to do with dimension alignment.

Hello,

 

I'm not the only one seeing this.  Would a reboot help?

Hi @kjoiner,

 

I've seen this issue also, and seems to be local to the file, so a Solid Edge, or even a system, reboot doesn't reset it.....until the location nudging happens, and the indicator line is then gone.

My computer and the one having the issue are both using nVidia Quadro 2000 cards.
